Craft – back to basics

Craft – back to basics

I always thought that creativity is a must to be rewarded with Michelin stars, but Craft (1 star) proves different. Here simplicity is the key.

The romance of Blue Hill

Even if there are so many highly rated restaurants in New York, there is not a lot that is really worth a return (in fact, the same as everywhere in the world 🙂 ) Very often there is a disappointment before even starting your first dish. Like this Northern Italian…

Kinugawa, Paris

Let’s agree on the fact that Paris is not very “strong” for Japanese and sushi restaurants. There are little “real Japanese” places and if there are some, it seems that they are “frozen” in the 70s or 80s different from London or New York where there are many modern sushi…

Michel Troisgros, the third generation of the legendary Troisgros chefs’ family, is a real artist who creates and invents the third-millennium…
